Applying to netcare,
how best to do it.

As we know how much time and effort can be spent in crafting an application, we can offer you some good news: you can save the postal charges, and we are not looking for poet laureate style prose and to avoid giving you any queasy tummy-rumbling feelings, here are some friendly-tips, to help push you into that "hardly anything left that could go wrong" zone.

We are looking forward to welcoming YOU

All you need are three things:
  1. Cover letter
  2. Resumé
  3. Diplomas and certificates

(If you happen to have a really good recipe for raspberry cake you can make it four.)

As soon as you have everything together, click on our job offers, choose your dream job and click on "Apply now". Then you'll be redirected to our incredibly simple online application page. There you upload everything, answer a few questions, click on "Send application" and you get high-five from your future self.

Expect to receive a confirmation email, maybe some requests for clarifications and if all looks good, an invitation to meet us for a chat. We go to great lengths with the selection of our colleagues, so please be aware that it might take a little time before we can get back to you.

We will spend time with you at the face to face. We don't only want to get to know you. We also want to show you who we are. That's why we'll introduce you to everybody, show you your working environment and tell you everything about your future field of activity. Occasionally, we invite for a half-day to two "ice-breaking" days.

Cover Letter

Whoa, this infamous first sentence and all those rules. Just relax and speak it your way. Especially relevant, explain why you think you want to work with netcare, what made you apply for this particular job, what you're good at, when you can start and what your salary expectations are. We'd also be interested to know how you heard about us.
